Things Mark Has Done That Ellie Still Hasn’t (and probably never will)

  1. unplugged the refrigerator
  2. pulled dirt out of my plants all over the floor
  3. pulled a floor lamp over (which thankfully missed him)
  4. pulled the vacuum cleaner (also missed him)
  5. figured out how to open the cabinet door underneath the sink, pushed his hand inside, and then fussed at me because he couldn’t get to the non-child safe bottles inside.Β  (This door does have a safety latch on it but Ellie never put it to the test!)
  6. filled the laundry hamper with non-washable items

027 (800x533)two pens (good ones!), a puzzle piece and a block; not pictured because I had already taken them out: a board book and a ruler

Needless to say, we’ve done a lot more baby-proofing around here and there’s probably more to come.Β  Is this because of gender or personality? πŸ™‚

    Boys are SO fun! I love them! Having only boys, I can’t really speak to gender, but I can speak to personality. J&J were/are so different–one was/is curious in a “busy-doing” sort of way (like Mark), and the other was/is curious in a more “book-ish” sort of way (as in reading or discussing rather than doing satisfies his wondering).

    We had to do a lot more baby proofing with Elias than Savannah. Lucky for us we had our boy first πŸ™‚

    I am so glad that my son was not the only one who wished to kill your plants. My son enjoys 6 too, but we can convince him to put appropriate things into the hamper occasionally.
